You know things are falling apart in the Party of Greed when an aspiring gubernatorial candidate has to scrape the bottom of the competency barrel to find help with his hapless campaign.
Salisbury lawyer Bill Graham says he is not officially running for the Republican nomination for governor, but he now has an unofficial campaign strategist. Brian Nick, a veteran of Sen. Elizabeth Dole's office and of national Republican politics, has signed on as a senior adviser to Graham's N.C. Conservatives United.
For the past two years, Nick has run the communications operation at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which Dole chaired. The group recruits and supports Senate candidates across the country. Prior to that post, he was Dole's communications director.
Brian Nick is the genius who masterminded Dole's magical campaign to maintain Republican control of the US Senate. That's probably all you need to know about him, but a quick stroll through the Internets (various sites) is required to reveal his true brilliance.
Bob Casey, Jr ... Sen. Santorum is going to eat his lunch ...
Maine has been a state they're (Dems) talking about ... Virginia has been a state they're talking about ... and they're nowhere ...
The NRSC represents the majority of the views of the U.S. senators, and Senator Dole's personal positions come from her personal office
Katherine Harris is the candidate
The bottom line is that Republicans have worked with President Bush to enact policies that kept America safe during the war on terror. The Democratic alternative is political stunts and gimmicks, and that's not an alternative Americans will choose when it comes to their safety in the 2006 elections.
What a frickin' idiot - and a perfect match for Graham. Bev Perdue would SO kick Graham's ass if he survived the primary. Which he won't. Art Pope's only going to back one Puppet in this race, and that's going to be Bob Orr.
But with the taint of the Puppetmaster on his hands, Orr won't win the primary either. Fred "the Asphalt King" Smith will be the one to challenge Perdue. And he's going to get his ass kicked too.
